    Today we're looking at comparing a $1,000.00 camera VS an $8,000.00 camera. Specifically, the 80D vs the 1DXMK2. I have seen the 80D on sale as low as 999.99 which is why I went with that comparison price. Keep currency conversions in mind.
    2 MASSIVELY different cameras. You may be saying, why would you compare 2 cameras on such a drastically different scale? That makes no sense and no one would ever compare those two - Yes and No. I wanted to go over a few of the features that MAKE a camera 8,000.00 opposed to those that don't. The quality difference is also incredibly evident.

      I would take a week in Hawaii !! as a poor man I view that as my unicorn. I already have the parrot Anafi so the shots,video and 360s would make my day for sure. not to mention if I knew for a fact that I was going I would do everything in my power to nab a 80d before I left ;)

      Peter McKinnon This video only goes up to 1080p...Yet he said the standard when the video was made was making 4K videos.....and even today in 2019 people still upload videos at 1080p 30 fps and 60 fps.....no one does 120 fps for vlogs because it just looks weird.....

    In reply to Peter's question, I'd choose the $8k camera. After using it for a looong time to make films that make me happy, I'd use the money I earned from making those films to fly myself to anywhere in the world... then make a film there too. Eat. Sleep. Film. Repeat.

    I'm from Africa, off course you know about our economy here, am having about $800 USD to invest in a camera so I can kick start my photography career but I'm scared of making a choice cuz I have no idea what camera to get, I feel like I can get an affordable one but in turn get no customer at the end of the day which will hence lead to frustrations and mental retardation if possible 😏,, am seeking an honest advice and or sale me something within my budget that I will be grateful for and am gone try my best to use the crap out of it. A give away can totally change life🙏

    Doesn't auto-focus performance also depends on the lens? i.e. if using a cheaper Canon EF lens, the AF would be both noisy and slow, a lot of hunting, whereas the high-end L series lenses would be quiet and very quick with the AF

    Hey @PeterMcKinnon, I recently started watching your channel, and I really enjoy what you do. I also have a passion for photography and film making. I wanted to know what's a good camera for me to start with my budget is $1200.

  • viajer m

    2 years later I am wondering if paying $8000 dollars for a camera for its video capabilities is still worth it considering that Panasonic GH5 is cheaper than $8000 and it seems to be the videographers dream. It seems to me that it is much better to buy a 5D and a GH5 for less than $8000.

    No one talks about walking around carrying pro sticks (heavy) in 95 degree heat. Doing pans in contorted positions throwing the back out. Talking to interesting passerby's, creating the story, editing the dang footage which may take weeks. I've been doing all this with a 5Ti using a lens one step up from kit. I've been filming all summer and have never seen any other hobbyists using a tripod. Many people think you just walk around with this 'thing' around your neck and take GREAT shots all at horizontal position. Remember people, FULL FRAME means spending a ton of money.

    I'd take 1 week anywhere because even though people would love high-quality videos/ pictures, I think that they'd appreciate great content from some awesome location! Not to mention that the $8000.00 camera would still require some awesome glass, a microphone and some very expensive cards to be fully operational!
